Dr. Ko Wen-Je is the Attending Physician and Chairman of Department of Traumatology at the National Taiwan University (NTU) Hospital. He is also an Associate Professor and a senior ICU staff specializing in external trauma, critical care, and organ transplants.

Dr. Ko had completed his research fellowship at the University of Minnesota where he focused on the study of artificial liver. After completing his research abroad, Dr. Ko returned to Taiwan to lead an organ transplant team targeted at improving the success rates of heart transplants. It was then that Dr. Ko introduced the Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) technique to Taiwan. Other notable contributions include establishing a standardized procedure during transplant surgeries, which has since been advocated by Taiwan’s Ministry of Health and Welfare.
